One in three households has a monitored security system installed to help protect against burglary, fire, and other household emergencies. That also means that two out of three homes do not have a home security system installed. Many of these homeowners are simply unaware of the benefits of a monitored home security system, while others just simply don't know enough about how a security system works and are turned off by their lack of knowledge.

In a perfect world, everyone would be able to have the protection of a home security system. But as we said, many people don't know how a security system works and are simply unaware of their benefit. This video explains the basics of how a security system operates.

A wireless security system is like having an automated security guard at your home. A wireless security system consists of a Control Panel and a series of wireless sensors. The Control Panel is the "hub" of the system and normally has a keypad, communication device, and a siren. The Control Panel is the workhorse of the security system and communicates signals to a monitoring station when your security system is triggered - when it is armed. The wireless security system's sensors are devices that you put around your home that will alert the Control Panel if a door or window is opened, if a motion sensor is triggered, or if one of your monitored smoke detectors goes off.

You place the wireless sensors around the home on doors and windows while motion sensors go on walls in certain large rooms. When these sensors are triggered the alarm sounds, and the monitoring station is sent a "distress" signal from your wireless security system -- basically alerting the monitoring station to contact local authorities.

When the system is set off there is a siren that will sound inside your home. This is to, hopefully, scare off intruders and draw attention while the police are called. A wireless home security system can also have components that will notify authorities if there is a fire or medical emergency. The Control Panel also has "panic buttons" you can use to contact local authorities without calling an emergency phone number.

Overall, wireless security systems are fairly simple devices but they do very sophisticated work. Protecting a home is not easy for anyone, much less a wireless security system, but it is by far the best line of defense against intruders and other home disruptions.
